Air Force updates service anthem with gender-neutral lyrics

The US Air Force is changing its song to be gender-neutral. The announcement was made by Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein. Goldfein said the change applies to the third verse of the Air Force Song. Women currently make up about 20% of the force. A line in the verse will now read ’A toast to the host of those we boast, the U.S. Air Force!’, in place of ’A toast to the host of the men we boast’.
